On Aug. 26, AMC uploaded a sneak peek of "The Walking Dead" season 4 on YouTube. The clip doesn't reveal very much but it does make fans wonder what Michonne's future holds. Do viewers have a reason to worry if actress Danai Gurira will be on her way out or will she be sticking around?

The sneak peeks hows Michonne riding up to the prison on a horse. As she is approaching, Carl runs to open the gate for her. While she makes her way inside, some walkers manage to also get in. Michonne has to fight off the walkers that are surrounding her the second she gets off her horse. Carl grabs his gun and runs up to try to save the day. Maggie pokes her head out of the watchtower door and also comes running at the end of the short sneak peek clip.
One thing that was noticeable is that fans see Carl opening the gate, but does he close it? The gate makes a drawn out dragging sound and it was seen and heard when he opened it, but it is unclear if he actually closed the gate after she came in. Was this a mistake or is this a part of his plan? He was pretty angry at end of season 3 and if fans who are calling him the "mini Governor" are right, then he could let a few walkers in to show the others that they are not safe.
So, is Michonne in danger? Probably not. First, there are not enough walkers surrounding her. Not only is she used to fighting more than one, but Carl is running up with his gun and Maggie is coming to the rescue, too. It has been said before that they tend to kill off characters when there is nowhere else to go with them. This is not the case with Michonne. There is much more to her story, so she should be sticking around for a while.
